Batman v Superman's Comic-Con Footage Will Not Be Officially Released

1 hour ago

There are two different kinds of San Diego Comic-Con trailers. The first category is filled by those that make their debut in Hall H, Ballroom 20, or one of the other big venues in the San Diego Convention Center, and then officially find their way online either immediately after the panel or a few days later. The second category, however, is made up of the reels that nobody outside of the expo's attendees are supposed to see. This unfortunately usually includes the biggest blockbusters showing their stuff at the convention, and in the case of this year's festivities, that means Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. Variety has confirmed that Warner Bros. has no plans to release the first ever teaser footage from the DC Comics movie, which was shown twice during the studio's Hall H presentation this past Saturday morning. The trade got the official word from Sue Kroll, president »

Star Wars: Episode VIII Director Reveals Two Classic Movies That Will Inspire His Film

2 hours ago

If you aren't already excited for Rian Johnson's Star Wars movie, you're in good need of an attitude adjustment. Back in 2005, the young director exploded on the scene with his fantastic debut Brick, and has since brought us stylish and creative thrillers like The Brothers Bloom and Looper - not to mention some of the best episodes of Breaking Bad. Sadly we still have a long time to wait until his vision actually makes its way to theaters, but the filmmaker is already hard at work finding inspiration for what his movie will be. A guest on the 500th episodes of the Filmspotting podcast (via Chicago Sun Times), Johnson explained to the hosts that he can't tell anyone about what he's working on ("I.m really excited about all the things I can.t tell you"), but over the course of the interview he revealed that he and his »

Is Katee Sackhoff Getting Closer To Joining Marvel?

4 hours ago

With all this recent chatter about introducing more female superheroes to the Marvel Cinematic Universe, many comic book movie fans have found themselves repeating one name: Katee Sackhoff. The actress has a large sci-fi fanhood following thanks to her time playing Starbuck on the reimagined version of Battlestar Galactica, and many of those same people want to see her take on more big genre pictures - making Marvel a natural fit. Of course, it's all dreams and speculation until news comes down officially from Marvel, but at the very least Sackhoff does seem to be sticking close to the Marvel family. Earlier today, the actress posted an update for her fans on her Twitter page and revealed that she will soon be meeting up with one of the most important people in Marvel Comics history: I'm wearing red leather to my meeting with @TheRealStanLee today, sorta just seemed appropriate..

Disney's Jungle Book Snares Christopher Walken And Giancarlo Esposito

5 hours ago

Disney has been putting a lot of effort into creating an enticing ensemble for their live-action re-imagination of The Jungle Book. The latest addition to the cast is a pair of heralded and established performers. Academy Award winner Christopher Walken (The Deer Hunter) has signed on along with Giancarlo Esposito, who earned an Emmy nomination for his work as Gus Fring on the highly-acclaimed TV drama Breaking Bad. Director Jon Favreau has pulled together an incredible cast that not only includes Christopher Walken and Giancarlo Esposito, but also Scarlett Johansson, Idris Elba, Lupita Nyong'o, Ben Kingsley and newcomer Neel Sethi. Disney first adapted Rudyard Kipling's novel about a boy raised in the jungle back in 1967, as a cartoon musical. Favreau's version will replace the hand-drawn animals for computer-generated ones, who will likely have a photo-realistic look. Only Neel Sethi will appear in the movie in the flesh, as he »

Batman v Superman: Dawn Of Justice Set Photos Show Off Some Massive Destruction

6 hours ago

Saw some other damage.. but probably not due to weather! #BatmanVSuperman pic.twitter.com/fP5Fo7rwBA. The Bananadoctor (@Bananadoc) July 29, 2014 While there were many out there who were a little perturbed by the immense destruction featured at the end of Man of Steel, it will probably only slightly diminish the amount of action featured in Zack Snyder's upcoming Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. Collateral damage will surely be kept to a minimum, but various objects in various environments - buildings, parked vehicles, lamp posts, etc. - will be open season. Don't believe me? Just check out these new photos from the set. Posted by Twitter user @Bananadoc and discovered by JoBlo, the new show us that something very, very bad is going down in Metropolis. While my first instinct was to think that this is damage caused by fisticuffs between the Dark Knight and the Man of Tomorrow, »

Alexandre Aja Still Trying To Bring Japanese Manga Series Cobra To The Big Screen

6 hours ago

Alexandre Aja is likely best associated with horror. With directing credits that include The Hills Have Eyes, Maniac and Piranha, not to mention the upcoming feature adaptation of Joe Hill's Horns, Aja continues to make a name for himself within the genre. But we learned a few years back that the director has his sights on an ambitious sci-fi project. When we sat down with him at Comic-Con to talk about his work, he gave us an update on his efforts to bring the Japanese manga series Cobra -- also known as Space Cobra, unrelated to G.I. Joe -- to the big screen. From the sound of it, this is a project with a very big budget, and thusly requires a very big star to take the lead. "It's a huge, huge project. Super expensive. Like $150 million-plus," Aja told us, when we asked what the progress was on the »

How Guardians Of The Galaxy Triumphed Over The Film Industry's Backwards Thinking

7 hours ago

Guardians of the Galaxy is poised to be one of the biggest movies of 2014. Through a string of fun and energizing trailers, it has scored an avalanche of fan enthusiasm online. Its cast is insanely charismatic, and Guardians of the Galaxy is gaining major praise, being called (by some) the greatest science-fiction movie since Star Wars. And yet it almost didn't happen this way at all. In a profile piece for Time, Guardians of the Galaxy screenwriter Nicole Perlman revealed why. But to understand how Guardians of the Galaxy came to be a cinematic force to reckoned with it is, you first need to know about Perlman. Enamored by rocket science and science fiction from an early age, Nicole Perlman wrote her first spec script about physicist Richard Feynman, and it won her a spot on Variety's coveted Writers To Watch list of 2006. She garnered buzz penning a pair of »

Watch The Divergent Scene That Had To Be Deleted Due To Violence

9 hours ago

Divergent made a nice chunk of change when it was released this past March, and pretty much assured itself three more years at the box office with its follow up installments. What was interesting about this film's success is that it was built on a book that really didn't seem cut out for a "one size fits all" young adult adaptation. As we've now learned today, the final product was trimmed just to do that and the original cut would have retained one of the key moments of violence from the text. Yahoo scored the Divergent clip from the upcoming home video release's collection of deleted scenes. Among those scenes is one of the most important scenes setting up Peter (Miles Teller's antagonist) as a psychotic menace rather than the smart assed wimp that we got in the film. In the book, Peter actually stabs a kid in the »

Maze Runner Trailer Reveals The Future Is One Big Death Trap

9 hours ago

Man, what is up with teens and dystopian futures? Nearly all the Ya adaptations we've seen lately take place in a dark world where kids live under the totalitarian rule. The new trailer for The Maze Runner seems to fortify that worldview, with the young protagonist thrust into a world not of his own making, where he must survive with only the help of his new, mysterious friends and his own wits. Unlike The Giver, however, he doesn't have wise old Jeff Bridges to help him out. This is actually a pretty great trailer, building the suspense and mystery and leading into some diverse, well-shot action sequences. Obviously there's someone out there posing a menace, but also there's the maze itself, which offers the illusion of escape. Late in the trailer, the money shot seems to be the whole environment rising and re-shaping itself as if it were a giant »

New Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Poster Hits Too Close To 9/11 For Many

9 hours ago

There are certain movies that seem to court controversy. They find a polarizing subject, and they release marketing materials in order to generate headlines. Stirring the pot is the basic marketing strategy. Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles is not one of those movies. In fact, the flick.s basic existence is likely owed to good vibes and the marketing power of nostalgia. Unfortunately, controversy has still followed the movie at every turn, and now, thanks to an ill-advised marketing choice, the headlines are continuing. Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles is set to be released on August 8th in the United States. It will follow a little more than a month later in Australia. More specifically, it will follow on September 11th, a date which holds great significance as a result of the terrorist attacks on New York City. Whoever put together the marketing materials, however, didn.t necessarily make that connection, and »

Star Wars: Episode VII Filming Might Endanger The Future Of Irish Birds

9 hours ago

Well, of all the headlines you could possibly imagine Star Wars: Episode VII might earn ahead of its release, I bet the above is not one you would have come up with. Nonetheless, hot on the tail of news that the next Star Wars installment will be shooting on location on Ireland's lush and lovely island Skellig Michael, comes outrage from conservationists concerned about how filming might impact the local wildlife. The Guardian reports Disney's Star Wars: Episode VII has run afoul of wildlife conservationists who worry the big productions occupation of Skellig Michael island will disturb the breeding season of its native birds. Their fear is that the coming year could see a troublesome drop in the population of puffins, manx shearwaters, storm petrels, peregrine falcons and guillemots who typically use the remote island for their mating season, which is going on right now. Here are some puffins in »

Fifty Shades Of Grey Trailer The Most Viewed Of 2014

10 hours ago

This weekend, the box office will be dominated by the marvelous appeal of Guardians of the Galaxy, a superhero tent pole that is earning wildly emphatic critical praise. But when it comes to winning the interwebs, that honor goes to a far saucier property. And it did it with plenty of sex appeal. THR reports that Fifty Shades of Grey's trailer has already amassed the most views of 2014, more than 36.4 million since it debuted on July 24th. These numbers were tabulated by the tech firm Zefr, which gave a breakdown of the runners-up as well. As you might expect, all of these were summer releases that boast loads of action and usually star power. Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles' first trailer has earned 31 million views. Godzilla and Transformers: Age of Extinction's trailers each amassed 26.3 million views in their first weeks online. And lastly, Dumb and Dumber Too hit the 23.5 million mark. »

Marvel's First Female Superhero Film Teased By Guardians Of The Galaxy Writer

10 hours ago

With all of the forward movement for female characters going on in the Marvel Comics world, it's hard not to wonder if any of that movement is going to cross over into the realm of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. While we're hearing more about prominent female leads in the ensemble driven The Avengers: Age Of Ultron, the eventuality is this: we're going to want a female superhero to be showcased in their own origin film and subsequent franchise sooner rather than later. Apparently, Marvel knew this day would come eventually, and it looks like they're already making movement on granting audiences that very wish! Time Magazine recently ran a profile on Nicole Perlman, the first female writer to be credited on a Marvel Studios picture. In that profile, they discussed her path to working on Guardians Of The Galaxy. As it turns out, she actually got to pick the assignment »

Tim Burton Considers Eva Green For Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children

11 hours ago

From the haunted Vanessa Ives of Penny Dreadful to the fearless warrior Artemisia of 300: Rise of an Empire and the psychotic sexpot Angelique Bouchard of Dark Shadows, Eva Green is an actress who revels in the dark dance of macabre characters. So it should come as little surprise that she's said to be circling the title role in Tim Burton's in-development adventure Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children. Variety reports that Eva Green has entered into talks to headline Tim Burton's Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children, which Chernin Entertainment is producing. Adapted from the novel by Ransom Riggs, this movie is eying a production start date of February 2015. So Burton and his producers are likely eager to start locking down talent. Should she sign on, Green would be reteaming with Burton for the first time since Dark Shadows. While critics appreciated her willfully campy portrayal in »

The X-Men Universe Is Now Completely Reset, Says Producer

11 hours ago

While it was meant to clear up the continuity of the X-Men universe, many fans felt that X-Men: Days Of Future Past only confused the ongoing mythology even more. It seemed as if there were two universes, one dedicated to the exploits of the First Class gang in the past, and one gravitating towards Patrick Stewart's Professor X and his School Of Gifted Youngsters, a group we've grown to know pretty well over the years. But in a recent interview, X-Men producer Simon Kinberg suggests that you should probably forget all about that earlier timeline, because it's about to be irrelevant. MTV asked Simon Kinberg to reveal the Four Horseman Of The Apocalypse that would show up in X-Men: Apocalypse , acknowledging that we've already seen the most famous Horseman, Angel, in X-Men: The Last Stand. Kinberg wouldn't reveal if Angel was there, but he did confirm something that we've »

This Is What The Deadpool Movie Would Have Looked Like

12 hours ago

Above you'll see a small piece of what could have been. It's our first -- and maybe last-ever -- peek at what Ryan Reynolds' Deadpool was supposed to look like. This clip recently surfaced (via Den of Geek and multiple other sites) as a brief test-footage glimpse at what the proposed movie (from first-time director Tim Miller) would have looked like. And the results are... pretty Deadpool-y! If you can recall, Reynolds basically played a beta-version of Deadpool in X-Men Origins: Wolverine. As mercenary Wade Wilson, he shows up, cracks some jokes, vanishes for an hour, then returns with a mouth carved shut and new, bizarre abilities. Not only was the new Deadpool script not at all related to the previous film, but it openly mocked the character's strange treatment by Fox executives. Written by Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick of Zombieland fame, the project was penned to »

Kill Bill: The Whole Bloody Affair May Screen In 2015

13 hours ago

Comic-Con in San Diego seemed a little light on breaking news, though there were a couple of bombshells dropped during this year's proceedings. There were also some pieces of news that somehow didn't make as big of a splash as one would have thought. One such announcement, if it comes to fruition, is the fulfillment of a decade long promise. The promise that we'd get to see Kill Bill as one, singular bloody affair. During his panel with Dynamite Entertainment, with SlashFilm in attendance, Quentin Tarantino started talking about how Kill Bill originally had an extended cut of the anime backstory for O-Ren Ishii. After detailing why the sequence was cut and how it was eventually finished, Tarantino decided to drop the following statement. The Weinstein Company and myself were talking about actually coming out with it sometime, not before the year is out, but within the next year with »
